Roleplay Engine

From Lord Of The Craft
Jump to: navigation, search

On Lord of the Craft, we utilize a multitude of interesting and immersive features coded by our very own Development Team. The fundamental and the core of all of these plugins revolve and center around the Obelisk Framework. Roleplay Engine, known as the 'Primordial Update' to the Obelisk Framework, is a plugin created to handle and encapsulate all aspects of the chat which occurs on our Minecraft Server. Created and employed to provide practical, yet powerful, techniques to promote and develop an immersive and structured Roleplay environment. Roleplay Engine is the driving force behind all in-game channels of communication; used to control Roleplay, Public and Private Messaging, and behind the scenes channels for players to request aid in tricky scenarios.



The most used channel here on Lord of the Craft, the Talk Channel has a small radius though is used and customised for your basic Roleplay needs. All speech and emotes occur in this chat channel. Used and purposed for every day conversation with your family, friends, enemies and all manner of creatures you encounter, the Talk Channel is well suited to your needs!

Similar to the Talk channel, Shout offers an extra range for your character. This chat has been customised to allow emotes to be carried out through the channel, offering that extra 'umpf' to your experience. Just as one would in the real world, the Shout Channel implies a loud vocal range, able to carry your messages further distances than before!

For when you want to hold a private conversation with the person sitting to your side, the Whisper Channel comes perfectly in handy for those hush hush talks. Enhancing the talking experience, the Whisper Channel allows you to communicate only with people within direct vicinity.

Alike Whisper, the Undertone channel is used for quiet discussions among those sitting with you. Undertone is much quieter than Talk, though allows for a wider radius than Whisper. Providing an enjoyable dynamic, the Undertone Channel allows you to communicate closely and fluidly with any in close range.

Global OOC

Held and considered as the 'General' chat of the server, the Global Out-of-Character Chat is open and available for any all non Soul player. This chat is often filled with conversation generally not circulating Roleplay, but instead acts as a hub for general player communication server wide. With a chat radius of the entire server, if you have joined the Global Out-of-Character Chat, you will be able to communicate with any other who is also joined in that chat from anywhere on the server.

Local OOC

Much alike the Global Out-of-Character chat, the Local Out-of-Character chat was designed to offer a respite from the intense, yet immersive, Roleplay experience that is available on Lord of the Craft.

Shout OOC

Shout OOC, is a command that you can use to expand the range of your speakings. This will expand the block-span to 48 blocks, rather than 20, making other players out-of-range, have the ability to see your message.

Whisper OOC

Whisper OOC, is a command that allows you to oocly "whisper". This will decrease the block-span to 2 blocks, allowing everyone not-in-range of those 2 blocks, have the inability to see your message.

Undertone OOC

Undertone OOC, is the command of /qooc, this allows you to speak quieter outside of roleplay. Undertone OOC will not travel outside of walls, nor will it travel the span of 8 blocks.


Wandering Soul

The Wandering Soul chat, is where new, unwhitelisted players will speak! Here, you can converse with many others that are not whitelisted as well. Do not fret, however! You won't be in this chat for long if you're accepted into the server. Wandering Souls can fly around, but may not use mechanisms such as portal signs, that whitelisted players have the ability to use.


The channel, Messages, is a channel where you can personally message any player of the Lord of the Craft community. You can join this channel by executing the command of /msg [playername], OR, you can execute the sole command of /msg.


The channel, Help, is a channel that you can join if you have a question, or need any tips/advice from the player base. This chat is accessible to players of any ranking, and you can even answer other players questions! Join this channel by performing the command of, /h or /help.

PvP Issue

If you ever have any PvP issues, All you need to do is throw up a modreq! Don't try and argue it with the other part, it will make it worse. It may take a little bit for your modreq ticket to be looked over, so make it detailed! If the situation is escalating quickly, and it has evolved into nothing but the other part arguing; you may just have to PM a Moderator. While this isn't recommended, some moderators will have common courtesy for their fellow player base, and will take care of the situation for you.



The channel, Broadcast, is a channel for the General Moderator team. If there's a message that needs to be displayed server-wide, they'll broadcast it. For example; "The server will be going down for the update to 1.11.3 in about 30 minutes!" This channel is inaccessible for the normal player.

War Broadcast

The War Broadcast channel is a channel that will only be used to broadcast war claims, server-wide. It usually announces the beginning of a war claim, and the concluding of a war claim.


The Team Channel is specifically for the Staff members of Lord of the Craft. This is a way for all of the Staff teams to co-operate together and converse on server affairs. As a member of Staff, you can run the command /tm to join this channel.


Emoting is a way of showing one's emotions through roleplay, as the name hints. What you'll need to do to emote, is, press your talk button, just like you're going to say something IRP. After you do that, you'll need to put down an asterisk (*). You can do this by pressing Shift+8 on most computers. For example, "*goes to turn around after he does so, he'd then glance towards Avelia, "Hello, how are you today?" This would show up as - "Alandi goes to turn around after he does so, he'd then glance towards Avelia, "Hello, How are you today?"


Muffling occurs when the undertone channel is being utilized. When player(s) are conversing in undertone behind a wall, it appears as "*muffled*" in chat to those on the other side of the wall. You only receive this if you are within 8 blocks of the person speaking, but are still separated via a wall, etc.

Additional Features


/focus is an Iron+ VIP perk that will let you focus on one channel specifically. If you're trying to roleplay, and don't want to be bombarded by private messages, or prompt's from another channel such as the OOC channel, or the Help channel then you could just do /focus RP and it will get everything out of the way for you, until you run the command again to get out of focusing on the RP channel. This command works for every channel.


- Everybody will always have a ten minute timer of when you can Soul Stone once more, however, that may change depending on whether someone issues the command "/ss block" where you would have an additional ten minutes to wait.

- Everybody except Diamond VIP and above, will receive a thirty minute cool down for switching their persona's

- Everybody except Diamond VIP and above, will receive a five hour cool down for changing their names via "/persona name <name>"


This channel, the "party," channel—is a channel made for those of you that want to get together a friend group and chat with each other OOC without random member's tuning in to listen to your conversation, or respond to it. You can create a party by typing /party create or simply /party new. This will create a new party with you listed as the owner, and you can invite another player's to your party by typing /party invite (player). If you decide that you don't want this player in your party anymore, you can type /party kick (player). Now, let's say you decide that you want to log out of the server but want to keep your party intact. To do this, simply transfer over leadership to another online player by typing /party leader (player). If you're invited to a party, then you can type /party accept. If you want to leave that party, simply type in /party leave. You and a few other people out of your party have to leave, and you want to disband that party, type in /party disband to do so.


Formatting is a luxury that only donators can use. You can begin to use formatting at Coal VIP, and anything above that of the 1100 crown rank. If you're wanting to make chat bold, then you need to press shift+6 to equal what looks like a little hat (^). You need to put this on both sides of the text that you'd like to be bold, in order for it to work. Now, if you want your chat italicized then you need to press forward slash (/) and surround the text with that as well.


Continuity, is a plugin within the Roleplay Engine that LotC uses. This allows you to expand your short, bland speakings, into longer, more detailed speakings. You can toggle continuity by doing /me, for most, default continuity will be the key of "=".
